Thankfully no. I think people see that he's our third child and they leave us alone.

I have to say though that my #1 pet peeve when it comes to babies crying is others' saying, "Oh he must be hungry." Yeah. I routinely take my kids out when they're hungry and just let them cry in public. Grr.

I have gotten nonstop advice from MIL who swears that most of the newborns from her family slept for hours once they were swaddled. Our little one is very active and is a light sleeper. She insists that we swaddle her and that will be the solution to all of our problems and the baby will sleep 5-6 hours straight. Mishka HATES being swaddled and screams at the top of her lungs when we try but MIL just won't let it go and keeps telling us that we don't know how to swaddle properly and that's why the baby is a light sleeper.

I guess that is the advantage to living so far away from all relatives AND inlaws, LOL. Although I'm so desperate to move closer to family, I'm almost jealous of you guys who do have so much unwanted advise, lol. ALMOST...

Oh yeah. Back in her day that's what they did! I've heard that one before. Just say thank you and put it away until she's old enough, lol. Free rice cereal!

Oh yeah, duh... See I don't think of these things because I have to have my children with me 24/7. :P What I wouldn't give to be able to hand them off for a few hours, lol...
